Nokia has announced inter-connect carrier Gulf Bridge International (GBI) will use the Nuage Networks SD-WAN 2.0 solution to offer their enterprise customers optimised connectivity between branches and private and public clouds.

Customers within GBI's presence in more than 26 countries can reduce their operational overhead with the new service.

This deal marks the first extension of a software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) to the public cloud in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

GBI provides managed IP services to hundreds of enterprise customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA) and Asia. With this new solution, GBI's customers can set up automated services with specific policies related to availability, reliability or security, via one, unified interface.

This includes dynamic responses to security threats such as distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) and the ability to monitor capacity and distribute it manually or automatically in order to meet the bandwidth needs of individual branches or data centres.

GBI also has an extensive cable network.
